As part of its ongoing strategy to drive digital-led innovation and digitally-enabled intelligent operations for clients around the world, Genpact is expanding its U.S. presence by investing in strategically attractive cities to better serve clients locally.

Over the past five years, Genpact has increased the number of U.S. employees by more than 50 percent.
"The rapidly-changing global business environment and the growing importance of being geographically close to clients has spurred us to make strategic decisions to expand our U.S. operations," said NV 'Tiger' Tyagarajan, president and CEO, Genpact. "We chose to open a center in Jacksonville because it's a budding financial services hub and boasts both an extremely favorable business climate and an impressive digital talent pool. We are excited to grow this center to help our clients transform their operations with the power of our domain expertise and digital and analytics solutions."
"Jacksonville is a global destination for business, and Genpact's decision to expand its U.S. presence here is further proof," said Tim Cost, JAXUSA Partnership Chair.

The company will initially begin providing processing, underwriting, and closing services for residential mortgage loans for a leading financial services institution. Genpact plans to provide additional services at this center that it also provides globally, bolstered by the company's strong and growing digital and analytics capabilities.
